The average cost of constructing a residential ternament region can range from Rs. 800/Sq. ft. to Rs. 2,500/Sq. ft., depending on the material quality.


This price includes all labour and material costs, from excavation to door and window installation, as well as electrical and plumbing costs.

Electrical and plumbing accessories, as well as any painting costs other than whitewashing and furniture work, are not included in this price.

Approximate Cost of Construction of Midium Specification = 1000 * 900 = Rs. 9,00,000, according to the above thumb rule. Where 1000 is the built-up area and 900 is the assumed value based on the thumb rule.


Actual cost is determined by the structure and architectural drawing, as well as the current state of the site.

Furthermore, we can use the following thumb rule to get an approximate estimate of various quantities required for a 1000 sq. ft. built-up area.


Thumb Rule of Quantities of Material for 1000 sq. ft.

  • Aggregate = 38 Cubic meter or 60,800 kg. or 60.8 Ton (Assumption density = 1600 kg/m3)
  • Bricks = 8 Bricks/sq. ft. = 8000 Bricks/1000 sq. ft.
  • Cement = 400 bags
  • Flooring = 1300 sq. ft. = 325 No. of Tiles
  • Paint = 180 lt.
  • Sand = 51 Cubic meter or 81,600 kg. or 81.6 Ton (Assume density = 1600 kg/m3)
  • Steel = 4 kg/sq. ft. = 4000 kg/1000 sq. ft.

Condition : Actual quantities are determined by architectural and structural drawings.

Thumb rules were developed after observing more than 500 input construction costs from various reference materials.

Furthermore, as a rule of thumb, the approximate cost of various work or materials is as follows.
